This year, we all seem to be craving a little more soul with our sparkle. A little more gratitude with our gifting. A little more consciousness in our celebrations. We are being invited to simply glow. Simply glow means getting back to the heart of the holidays. Giving from a place of love rather than duty. This includes self-gifting beautiful little things that make you feel better along the way.
Taking care of yourself during a time where it seems like thinking of ourselves should be the last thing to check off on our list... but it's not!
Not buying into the hype and excess of overbuying can feel like pressure. But if you talk to family and friends and make a plan to keep things simple this year, and make an effort to give small presents, but be big on PRESENCE, you may see just how much more special the celebrations become.
Here are a few ideas on how you can simply glow and show up for yourself and family this year.
Give intentionally. Don’t just go to the mall and buy the first thing you find. Take mental notes by remembering what the person you're shopping for really needs.
Give simply. Choose simple gifts that allow the recipient to feel loved and nurtured from the outside in and the inside out. Gifts of self care, experiences (like yoga classes) are all ways to make someone feel elevated within.
Give consciously. Opt for sustainable giving and wrapping. Use an old silk scarf to wrap up a trio of your favorite Raw Sugar
products. Introduce someone who is health conscious to our Deodorants that come in 100% biodegradable packaging and contain naturally derived ingredients so they can ditch the aluminum. Introduce the sister or aunt that don’t take time for themselves, to a Body Wash, Foaming Bath and Lotion trio in a soul-lifting scent.
Give what you love. Sharing a product that you love to use is like sharing a piece of yourself. What’s your favorite way to spoil yourself at home? A relaxing bubble bath? Hair Masques
and luxurious Body Butter
? Give that.
Give Self Care. Ask your friends and family to all join in giving products that make them feel good. Everyone will be on the same page and you’ll get to share and discover new ways to love yourself and get all the feels.
